Buckeye police arrested Michael Caleb Begay, 18, David Wayne Mayles, 19, and an unnamed 17-year-old on charges of theft and burglary.

Buckeye police officers arrested three Glendale teenagers Oct. 11 on charges of vehicle theft and burglary.

According to Donna Rossi, a Buckeye Police Department spokeswoman, a resident of an apartment complex at Miller and Beloat roads called about a black Jeep prowling the parking lot.

“Officers arrived, spotted the black Jeep and as they approached, three subjects ran from the Jeep through the complex,” Rossi said.

Officers chased and caught the three suspects, she said.

“The investigation revealed the three suspects were involved in a number of burglaries and had just stolen two vehicles from another complex not far away.”

She said police recovered two stolen firearms and other property stolen from vehicles.

Michael Caleb Begay, 18, and David Wayne Mayles, 19, were booked into Maricopa County Jail.

A 17-year-old was taken to Durango Juvenile Detention Facility.

“All three suspects face a number felony charges,” Rossi said.
